My background as a singer and speaking voice expert has allowed me to help many not native English speakers gain confidence! I also work with regional accents to help "neutralize" . Bet you can't tell I'm from Chicago: I got rid of MY OWN accent through vowel work!

I started learning Spanish on an AFS trip to Montevideo, Uruguay in 1987. After taking 3 years of French in High School, I was given a Oxford pocket Spanish Guide by my host family and was indoctrinated into Spanish the old fashioned way- Immersion! Luckily, the verbs were similar and pronunciation was much easier than French. By the 2nd month I was dreaming in Spanish. I have tutored Spanish beginners with not experience, at the university level, and they have passed their classes with high marks (A). I have communicated with students and parents in my career as a teacher with the CCSD with clarity and confidence. Spanish is a wonderful language and I'd like to open up all of its possibilities for you, whether for business or pleasure. I'll even be able to help you with your accent. I'm looking forward to teaching you soon. John

John was a very patient and helpful instructor. Two of the participants had no water color experience and he provided them with a good understanding of the concepts as well as providing most helpful examples of how to actually do water colors. Will definitely ask John for a follow up session if we return to Las Vegas in the future.

The Johanson Family
My 14 year-old daughter has been taking voice lessons with Fawn for a little over a year. She adores Fawn, and loves her private lessons each week. My daughter has learned so much since studying with Fawn. Fawn teaches techniques that help to build a strong voice, and help her students to understand proper placement and breath support. My daughters pitch and singing have improved so much this past year, and we are so grateful to Fawn for helping her pursue her passion, knowing she isn't damaging her vocal chords any longer. Thank you Fawn!.
Peter
Fawn is a gifted teacher who is very considerate and cares about you as an artist and as a person. Whenever I have had to cancel last minute, she has been diligent about adding on extra time to my other lessons, to make up for it and so I don't lose out. I've never had a teacher do that for me before, I've always in the past just lost the lesson! I truly appreciate her for being so thoughtful and giving. Plus, I have been improving after every single lesson, which I can not say has ever happened before with other vocal, songwriting or piano teachers. Thanks Fawn! Look forward to more incredible growth under your direction!
Charleen
Because of Fawn's expert and original methods, I have learned how to control my voice and pitch. Fawn is a great original and innovative teacher who teaches her students how to sing correctly, quickly, efficiently and best of all, how to sing for the rest of their life! She teaches the correct way to pull out your tones and pitches and really sing those high notes without hurting or damaging your instrument, and has helped me get deeper tones in my chest voice. My voice is richer, warmer and fuller than I could have ever imagined, even in my head voice. She has given me exercises no one else has, because she tailor makes them to each individual's needs. Some of her techniques literally work like magic! I look forward to many more lessons with Fawn because I know she will help me become the very best me that I can be!
Thank you Fawn :)
